Notes:

Also lettered in wrestling (two) and track and field (one) as a Wisconsin prep. Missed a portion of 2008 fall camp (left ankle) before appearing in three games as a true freshman in ’08. Started all 13 games at right guard in ’09. Played all 13 games in ’10, starting the final nine at the ORG spot once the high ankle sprain he suffered in preseason camp had healed. Sprained his left ankle during ’11 fall camp. Made all 14 starts at right guard in ’11.

Positives:

Outstanding size and strength. Thick-bodied, wide-shouldered and carries an imposing physical presence. Plays under control with great balance and footwork. Very good functional football-playing strength. Can lock up, steer and control defenders. Strong finisher. Plays smart — quick to see pressure unfolding and react to stunts and games. Switches off blocks to help. Extremely tough, competitive and determined. Grounded — hardworking, Midwestern values are ingrained in him. 

Negatives:

Average arm length. Appears almost overly muscled. Not an elite athlete. Can be stressed by quickness and do a better job of gauging his power and striking with authority. More of a grabber than a puncher. Limited versatility — guard only. Durability needs to be evaluated — has a history of ankle injuries. 

Summary:

Big, smart, steady, physical run blocker with the girth, strength and efficiency to plug-and-play in multiple schemes. Is a very safe pick and could give decision makers comfort knowing exactly what they are getting.
